Through the Murder Mouse Blues Band you can hear Adam's multi genred experience and influences. Adam is currently undertaking a PhD at the University of Western Australia.

There's not much to say about Warren other than the only thing he does better than drum is dress. Warren is the handsome man in the retro Coleman cap usually found to be wearing classic shirts which cost more money than the kit he's sitting on. A hugely sought after drummer in Australia, Warren has performed all over the world with various outfits over the past fifteen years. His emotional drumming is a highlight to watch at Murder Mouse shows and his outfits are just as compelling. Easily the best dressed man in Rock and Roll today.
When Warren is not banging the skins he enjoys impersonating Cuban bootleggers and ironing his wardrobe.
